FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why is this course relevant?
To bring HR analytics to the next level, it’s vital to start applying core statistical concepts. Testing hypotheses and understanding probability and significance are what will enable you to generate more reliable and meaningful insights. Finding a correlation is a good first step but seeing a cause-and-effect relationship is what you are really looking for. This is exactly what you will be learning with the Statistics in HR course.
Why is this course not sold individually?
To optimize the quality of your learning experience, the Statistics in HR course is not available for standalone enrollment. The course is part of our People Analytics Certificate Program and also included with the Full Academy Access License.
How do statistics help with HR Analytics?
Analytics are inseparable from statistics. Analytics is about making predictions using advanced algorithms or models. To identify which variables to add to your model, what sample size is needed, how effect sizes will impact your algorithm, and to answer many, many more analytics-related questions, you will need to have a solid understanding of statistics. That's what this course focuses on.
